Create Your First Addon
#1
The guys at the official kodi.tv forum have created an excellent guide on how to create your very first basic addon, even if you already have previous coding experience this is a great place to start as it will guide you through the basics of how Kodi works and explains the dependencies that are needed when creating an addon.

The wiki guide is here.

There is an official forum thread on the kodi.tv website where you'll get the best support possible but of course you can ask questions in here if you prefer. You can visit the official support thread here.
WANT EARLY DEVELOPMENT RELEASE ACCESS?
All users who've helped out with a donation can now gain early access to the
latest test versions of add-ons, often weeks or months ahead of the public stable releases.

Thanks for this info.  I really appreciate it.  I just purchased a fire stick about 2 months ago.  I have since purchased another box to dabble with Kodi.  I really find this stuff very interesting and have been searching on where to begin if I wanted to try to understand how it all works.  I have a little (very limited) bit of software knowledge and I'm looking forward to connecting to the community to learn more. Info like this is what makes it easier for noobs like me to become interested.  Thanks for the info.  It is just what I was looking for.

I am desiring to create my own addons - video plugins.

Pipcan has a good video, but my question is this:

I am wanting to make a news addon that streams the news and I wanted to use mashable or something similar to put news info on my addon so people can stream news and read their news from kodi addon.

My question really revolves around how to get the url link of the streaming video. I can perhaps view source?
also are their templates I can use where I can just change the url ? I am brand new to python

Pipcan has a My first Addon template in his Repo.
